As many as 135 villages will be developed in Medak district in the near future. These villages will have CC roads, drains and individual sanitary latrines.

Based on the number of labourers working under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MNREGS), which indirectly suggests the financial conditions of the villagers as dependent on work being provided by the government, these villages are being selected.
